Characteristics of Lessons Under Orton Gillingham Approach
Orton Gillingham is a reading approach which tends to create individual-based interventions for every kid. Any best Orton Gillingham tutor will, first of all, try to understand what difficulty the child is facing and then devise the lesson plans to address such difficulties.

Lessons are highly personalized

Lessons make use of more than one sense
Instead of just using one sense, the lessons under this approach make use of the tactile-kinesthetic, visual as well as auditory modalities to help children. This is because it is believed that by making the use of more senses; the children are kept engaged in the lessons and can retain and understand the information in a better way.
Lessons are extremely comprehensive while being sequential
Our Orton Gillingham trained tutors to develop lessons which are very well structured so that the understanding of a language can become convenient for the child. Generally, the lessons begin with understanding the sounds associated with the letters, then the letters moving onto syllables, words, sentences and so on depending on the ability of the kid.
Before beginning any new lesson, learning from the previous lessons are connected and reinforced so that confusion inside the child’s mind can be kept at bay. Everything is therefore taught in a proper sequence.
Lessons are diagnostic
After every lesson under the Orton Gillingham approach, the student’s ability and performance are thoroughly monitored. Based on this evaluation, future lessons are devised by the Orton Gillingham certified tutors to further enhance the student’s strength and to tackle his/her weaknesses, if any.
